The character, whose alter ego Anatoli Knyazev appeared throughout Arrow's second season as a recurring foil for Oliver both on the island and in present-day Moscow, will appear as part of "Task Force X," the Suicide Squad, a group also seen on the hit CW drama. He will appear in an upcoming arc of the recently-relaunched Suicide Squad comic book series, as well as in an issue of Aquaman and the Others due in stores in October.
